I didn't want to go out if that meant I had to pretend I was someone I wasn't.
When you're on welfare, sacrificing enough for a new lipstick is $10 less you have for food.
I was never taught that I was more than my vagina and that boys should respect me enough not to take "no" as a suggestion.
These days I'm fighting to be seen not as another stereotype, but as a real person.
